Celebrating the season in store
Christmas is the opportunity to create a warm welcome with a table set for the Christmas Day feast, plush velvet stockings hung by the fire, a handmade wreath on the front door, and a well-stocked drinks trolley, cocktails at the ready. Our stores are filled with ideas for all these thoughtful touches, so come in from the cold and let us share the festive season with you.
A warm welcome
Just a ten-minute stroll from the seaside lies ones of our coastal homes – Neptune Bournemouth. Set on the high street, it’s one of our largest stores. Inside opens onto a spacious, full-height entryway with an exposed brick chimney breast that runs from the top of the store all the way down to the Aga in our super-sleek Suffolk basement kitchen. It’s become a bit of an icon in the store’s architecture.
In all of our stores we try to include as many of our designs as possible, but to give you a better idea of what you can find within the confines of Neptune Bournemouth, just keep scrolling…
Who you'll meet
Art historians, textile specialists and fashion designers – there’s all sorts of creative disciplines in the team at Neptune Bournemouth that help us to advise on what might work best for your home. Nigel and Sophie are our store leaders, then we have Lowenna who’s our kitchen designer and Annie who co-ordinates all of our kitchen projects so that they run smoothly. Amy heads up kitchen design between us and nearby Winchester so she’s able to design kitchens for guests to either store – whichever’s best for you.
Virtual store tour
All four of our kitchen collections are waiting to be explored so you can get a real feel for every aspect from cabinet design to worktops. You’ll find that each one is set side by side with a living or dining space so that you can see how they work together, be it in a city apartment, contemporary townhouse or country cottage.
Inside Neptune Bournemouth you’ll find a selection of our most-loved dining tables with perfectly paired dining chairs, all dressed with a small selection of our tabletop pieces like pure linen tablecloths and hand-made crockery.
We’ve filled Neptune Bournemouth with an edit of our furniture collections, spanning the entire design spectrum from classic to contemporary. You can also explore all of our home accessories that translate to any room, helping it to feel warm, welcoming and perfectly in balance.
In our bedrooms, you’ll discover serene and restful decorating ideas, capacious wardrobes and chests of drawers, and blissfully soft, Portuguese-made cotton and linen bedding. Then there’s our solid timber beds, of course, upholstered headboards and handmade, natural mattress Barrington. And like in our living rooms, trying them out for yourself is most definitely encouraged.
Next door to our bedrooms, you’ll also often find dressing areas and washrooms. This is where you can discover our natural timber and Carrara marble washstands, our made-in-the-UK bath & body collections, and our elegant storage solutions to help you create a calm and welcoming bathroom.
Our in-store design library is the place that you can really get to know all our decorating finishes – from paint colours and wall coverings to flooring and fabrics – and where you can pick up samples to take home with you. You’ll also be able to see many of these finishes in-situ as you walk around. And, when it comes to lighting, you’ll spot the Coates recessed ceiling lights in action throughout our store, not to mention many of our other ceiling, wall, table and floor lights dotted around.

Need to Knows
We don’t have our own car park, but there’s a spacious, pay-and-display multi-storey right by our store.
Neptune Bournemouth has wide street-level access. Inside, there are one or two steps that lead to different levels but we have a ramp ready to help. There’s also a lift so that you can reach every floor. If there’s anything you would like to check with us before you visit, we’re just one call away.
There’s a little section of the store where you can park your pram should you want to. Inside, it’s lovely and spacious so even a double buggy will find its way around though.
Well-behaved dogs are more than welcome too. But if you’re the proud owner of four Great Danes, we’d appreciate it if you perhaps left them at home.
